We have been thrilled with the care and attention Thomas has received from your Little Readers staff. He has grown into a very confident 5 year old who is interested in learning! We are thrilled that he has this head start and we THANK YOU!
We found Oxford Learning through the volunteer work our eldest daughter was doing in the classroom. Our daughter was struggling with reading and writing. Our eldest asked the child who appeared to be the most proficient “how she learned to read so well?” The child responded “Little Readers!” We immediately googled ‘Little Readers’ and it led us here to Oxford Learning. The staff have worked hard to help us identify her gaps and have helped her work on a program that has reinforced the fundamentals that she did not get in a large classroom setting. She is excited to go to her lessons and her confidence builds every week. She works hard at her own pace with her tutors and is getting a strong building block in reading and writing. Thank you for helping us put a plan together to address our daughter’s individual needs.
